Talk:Liberty Republic

From Discovery Wiki

Is there anyone good at formatting? I think we should most certainly establish a format for the House pages, maybe something like this:

Lawful Forces
Quasi-lawful entities
Unlawful Entities
Government structure
-subsection: link to laws
Player Factions

Is Coronado considered Liberty? Its a way into Liberty, but it only links through Cortez, and is named accordingly for independent worlds. I'm going to pull it off the list, if you think otherwise we can discuss this and figure it out.

Also, is Puerto Rico, the Junker Guard system, considered part of Liberty?

As for Puerto Rico, I am pretty sure it does not belong to Liberty. A guard system is owned by the residing faction - and the Junkers are not (only) Liberty citizen.

As for Coronado, I thought it'd be belong to Liberty (due to the name), hence my edit. I'm not sure about it though. Best would be to get Igiss' knowledge on that part

Ships listed

Copied from the forums.

The Idea I have for this kind of thing was to link people to put Liberty ships into the [1] page.

The problem we face is that there are MANY Liberty ships. Lawful and unlawful. Are we going to include the unlawful ships on the Liberty list as well?

Another problem is people perceptions of what they can use. Can LSF use LN ships? Can regular LN use top secret LSF ships? Can pirates use lawful ships and vice versa? Common sense says no, but if you list them on there, since they ARE liberty ships, then people will assume they can. Might not be as big a deal as I make it, but the wiki needs to be clear in it's information representation.

While I appreciate what you're trying to do, it needs further "kneeding".

I have to say i agree with Hyung here. Without more detailed information about who uses the ship it is not a good idea to have them listed in the fashion. Perhaps if it was titled "ships manufactured in liberty" , that might help quell the usage issues...
Overall I think listing ships in NPC faction pages would work better. The question is how to format it there, use the ship miniboxes or have a table listing more stats or another option entirely?

I think the best options would be to have the ships listed in the NPC/Player factions themselves. Taking Liberty Republic as an example, it is inappropriate to mention only the lawful ones on that page. However it would be fully ok to have the relevant ships listed on the factions that are part of liberty. Then lawful ships can go on lawful factions pages. Unlawful ships can go on unlawful factions pages. The factions can be linked (are already) from the Liberty Republic, with the factions nav down the bottom of the page.

The only thing that might be a problem is "Can I use" allies ships? type questions. I think we should not include allies ships on the factions page, and direct them to the tech guide.
